In this recent track called "Pon di Gully" by Mavado speculations are that there is a subliminal diss in that track directed at Bounty Killer the Ground God. Its obvious there is a diss for Flexx who rise from the grime of the gully with Mavado - so when mavado says they are saying that they are cussing about his style flow and that he made it big because of them.... he is perhaps directing his venom at Flexx. But as for the line about the people in the dancehall don't want to see a next "God"... and that he is the leader of the new school and some of them should go a and look a next job - this is where some make the connection to Bounty Killer the Ground God. Mavado should be the only God in dancehall and Bounty Killer should find another means of making living.. perhaps the figuree bizznizz... idk rasta

The lawyer for accused murderer Adidja 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer has told a Home Circuit Court jury that the defense has left the State's case against his client naked and exposed as a conspiratorial lie.
Tom Tavares-Finson made the comment while making his closing arguments to the 11-member jury in the murder case involving Kartel and his four co-accused.
The defense closed its case this morning, paving the way for addresses to be made to the jury.
Tavares-Finson told the jury that the prosecution, in trying to prove its case, brought a number of witnesses masquerading in robes of the Constitution and in the authoritative robe of the Director of Public Prosecution.
He said the prosecution had said their witnesses would have been ones of truth and bring evidence to convince them of the role of the accused in the case.
However, the lawyer said through cross-examination, the defense has ripped the robes to threads, leaving the prosecution's case naked and exposed as a conspiratorial lie.
Tavares-Finson said the prosecution's case has also been left dressed in incompetence.
He pointed to the missing original copy of the main witness' statement to the police and a compact disc containing original evidence.
He also highlighted the notebook lost by Senior Superintendent of police Cornwall 'Bigga' Ford.
He told the jurors that they have been left to judge a case tampered and discredited by the prosecution's dishonesty and incompetence.
Yesterday morning, Tavares-Finson complained that the defense was served with some documents overnight.
One of the documents was a report from handwriting experts William Smiley and George Dixon.
The lawyer said the defense was not told about the second expert and that it was a serious breach of the protocol of disclosure and prosecutorial misconduct.
He asked the presiding judge, Justice Lennox Campbell to sanction the prosecution.
The Crown is alleging that Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer; entertainer Shawn Campbell, popularly known as Shawn Storm; André St John; Shane Williams; and Kahira Jones, murdered Clive 'Lizard' Williams on August 16, 2011.
All the defendants have given unsworn testimony declaring their innocence.

He said he noticed the smell when he visited the house on August 29, 2011.
Deputy Superintendent of police Vern Thompson, the man in charge of criminal investigations for the St Andrew North Police Division, testified also that the house was set on fire after his first visit on August 22, 2011, as part of a probe.
He said that the caution tape that he strung around the perimeter of the property was also torn down. The tape was replaced, Thompson said.
Additionally, Thompson, who was being led in his examination-in chief by senior prosecutor Jeremy Taylor, told the court that on a subsequent visit to the house on September 30 he noticed that the back of the house had been demolished and the police tape again torn down
Police believe Williams was killed on August 16, 2011.
Kartel and co-accused, fellow entertainer Shawn Campbell, popularly known as Shawn Storm, André St John, Shane Williams and Kahira Jones are on trial for the murder.

Detective Sergeant Patrick Linton, the former Head of the Cybercrimes unit, was questioned at length this afternoon as to how a cellphone attributed to entertainer Vybz Kartel was used to make several calls when it was locked up for safe-keeping in his locker.
In response to defence lawyers Tom Tavares-Finson and Pierre Rogers, Linton said he had no explanation for that.
The policeman said the key was put on top of the locker and he did not take it home with him.
He said when he received the phones on October 3, 2011 from the Flying Squad, he did not access them until the 14th.
The lawyers suggested to the witness that the Blackberry phone was used on October 19 to make several calls.
The lawyers also suggested that the integrity of the phone has been compromised.
Linton said he could not say if it has been compromised and agreed that the phone was put in the locker for safe-keeping.
Tavares-Finson also suggested to the witness that phone messages referring to Kartel as a 'flight risk were put in when a bail application was being made for the entertainer.
Linton denied that suggestion.
He said all that happened was that the investigating officer had asked him to write a forensic report in relation to information from the BlackBerry messages.
It was then suggested that Linton had put in those messages to oppose the bail application.
However, Linton said his request was based on what was relevant to the court.
Rogers then suggested to the witness that he was a trickster but Linton said no.
Linton later agreed that calls were made from the cellphone while it was in his custody.
The lawyers then indicated that if the evidence that the phone was used was not brought out by the defence he would not have brought it out.
Linton responded by saying that his analysis was to extract data relevant to the case.
However, he said he had not reported the unauthorised use of the phone to his superiors.
Linton also denied the suggestion that he was setting up his colleagues for attempting to pervert the course of justice.
Kartel, fellow entertainer Shawn Campbell also known as 'Shawn Storm', Kahira Jones, Shane Williams and Andre St John are on trial in the Home Circuit Court for the August 16, 2011 murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.
Williams was allegedly killed in relation to two missing guns.
